The new Apple iPhone 4 is a big deal, and will attract new buyers and upgraders alike, but this year Apple has many more iPhone owners, and this means more users upgrading to the latest iPhone iOS 4. Will they handle the increased demand on iOS 4 download day?
In previous years we have seen Apple have download problems thanks to heavy demand, with iTunes errors, and server connection problems. The latest iPhone 4 will already have the new iOS 4 installed, and this seems to be the most pain free way of getting the latest iPhone OS. But what about all those wanting to update their current iPhones, what would be the perfect time to download iOS4?
Discussions have already started on the Apple forums, with users wondering when the iOS4 software release time will be. The date is June 21, and rumor has the time at 10am PST (Pacific Standard Time). This is around 5pm UK time. Looking at the last updates, expect things to change and we expect a UK download time around 6-7pm.
You may want to check out an interesting poll PR News has run, which the results show 64% of users will download this update as soon as possible, while 19% will wait a few hours, and 15% will wait a few days. Will you download iOS4 right away?
